0522 Reduce Food Waste campaign
There is a greater need now more than ever to make sure healthy, edible food is not going needlessly to waste. Part of Foodlink’s mission is to rescue this nutritious food to ensure that it ends up in a kitchen – not landfills.

From collecting unsold produce from local farmers or taking slightly imperfect packaged goods from a local distributor, our food rescue operations help connect food to people in innovative ways.

Our operational expenses include staffing and equipment, and especially fuel to transport rescued food. With additional support from our donors like you, we can ensure we are rescuing more food for those whom we serve.
In Support of Foodlink

Foodlink is a Rochester-based nonprofit dedicated to ending hunger and building healthier communities by addressing both the symptoms and root causes of food insecurity. We serve as the hub of the emergency food system across a 10-county service area. As a leading public health organization, Foodlink administers many programs and initiatives that aim to build the health and wealth of communities.

We provide food assistance through the safe storage and distribution of emergency food to our network of food bank members and community partners. We build healthier communities through innovative programs that create new access points to nutritious foods and empower people to make healthy choices. We drive change through bold career empowerment initiatives and advocacy for a more just, equitable food system.
